State Librarian Beverly Cain visited students at Portsmouth West Middle School on Tuesday, March 6. Formerly the Director at Portsmouth Public Library, Cain and her intern, Jennifer Wiezbiski, presented information on literacy, fake news, and how students can best utilize libraries.  Sheree Barnett, PWMS librarian facilitated the presentation to provide yet another enrichment activity for her students. This school year Barnett has also hosted the Newport Aquarium for students who obtained their Accelerated Reader points.  She hopes to bring in COSI to reward students for their current Reading Challenge, and her annual Career Day is scheduled for May 17.  "I just want to provide as many opportunities as possible for our students," stated Barnett.  She will also be attending a leadership academy for Ohio librarians in March.
